Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"I specifically covered verbal with the student. I can see her improving and am glad. She scored roughly an 85%, which is great considering the ~70% it initially was. Afterwards I gave her some quantitative reasoning questions and saw improvement as well. As I had mentioned previously, she is stellar in reading comprehension. I left her with extra practice."
"Today was my first session with the students. They did a great job focusing, and they strike me as an excellent match for 2:1 tutoring, as they have comparable skill levels. They each had a test prep book already when I arrived, so that's what we worked with today. The first thing I wanted to do was get a feel for their current skill levels, so I picked a practice test and had them do sections of each section simultaneously. I timed them with a stopwatch to assess their current speed, which as it turns out, is near perfect. We'll be working on taking the right amount of math notes to keep the speed up, but provide visual processing support on vocabulary for the verbal sections, and on identifying the specific grammar rules necessary to complete the language skills section. I'm excited to continue working with them! They're both very bright students with good attitudes! Their homework this week is a list of 40 vocab words with etymology research to assist long term retention."
"The student took a Reading Comprehension quiz and did really well, once again doubling his score from his pre-test."
